Product Description

Get the classic tone of a Fender Strat with the added kick of a humbucker pickup. As part of the popular Fender Standard Series, this HSS Strat delivers outstanding value and build quality in a classic design. Featuring a smooth maple neck, whammy bar, and a five-way pickup selector, the HSS Strat is a sleek and versatile tone machine.

Sound of the HSS Setup

The humbucker, single, single pickup configuration is a long-time favorite of players in need a guitar that can do it all. The dual single-coils in the forward positions provide the vintage Strat tone of the surf-rock '60s with chiming, bell-like high-end. For players looking for a little something extra, the humbucker in the bridge position packs plenty of fat double-coil tone with robust mids and lows to complement the sparkle of the single-coils. Use the five-way pickup switch to dial-in the exact right tone for any situation. The humbucker by itself gives a thick, warm tone ideal for jazz and hard-rock, while the combination of both single-coils gives a wide yet precise jangle for classic-rock and blues.

Fender Quality Hardware and Classic Strat Playability

This Strat includes quality Fender hardware and components for an extremely comfortable and natural-feeling playing experience. The high-mass bridge sports a synchronized tremolo system in the classic Fender mold to add another layer of sonic versatility. The neck is made with a comfortable C-shaped profile which -- combined with the rosewood fretboard -- affords fluid action all up and down the guitar. Like any Stratocaster, this guitar gushes with vintage style giving it a old-school vibe to match its classic tone.

Features:

- Versatile pickup configuration with one humbucker and two single-coil Fender Standard pickups
- Synchronized tremolo with high-mass bridge block
- Smooth rosewood fretboard with medium jumbo frets
- Comfortable C-shaped neck with tinted finish
- Classic Fender vibe with 70s-style headstock logo

Celebrated for its value, the Fender Standard Series delivers unbelievable quality in an affordable guitars and basses. The HSS entry in the Fender Standard line takes things a step further with a versatile set of tonal options to conquer any genre and tone.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very good and solid mid-range guitar."
Sound: This guitar, with the stock pickups, does not sound much better than a Squier. But I am expecting massive improvements with upgraded pickups. Acoustically, the sound is full with nice sustain, so I'm confident the cheap electronics are holding this guitar back. Feature: Aside from the complimentary gig bag, this guitar has all the features you would expect. It would have been nice, however, if there was tone control for the humbucker. Ease of Use: Standard Strat setup. 3 pickups, 5-way selector, 1 volume, 2 tone knobs. doesn't get much simpler than that. Quality: I bought mine as a 'blemished' model, and it was a steal. Aside from a very minor, nearly impossible to see scratch, the quality is top notch. It would be difficult to tell this from an American Strat in terms of quality. And it actually stays in tune pretty well, which I wasn't expecting from what I've heard about Mexican Strats. I don't use the trem bar much, but it did knock it out of tune pretty easily. Value: In my opinion, this is an excellent guitar for the price. I plan to install new pickups, and maybe, eventually a new bridge and tuners, but still worth what I paid for it. The Wow Factor: what could be sexier than a 'brown sunburst' Strat? Overall: I like to keep a variety of styles of guitar on hand, and a Fender Strat is essential to any collection. Mexican made Strats are a more than acceptable substitute for someone like me who can't afford to have 10 top-of-the-line guitars. And as easy as it is to modify Strats, I expect to be keeping this for a long time.

"Solid instrument with a beautiful sound."
Sound: Beautiful dark tones and shining bright drive. I love the range I get from this guitar. The standard pickups deliver for their value if you know how to use them. Run it through any stompbox sounds great. Feature: Simplicity is the key. The soft tail bridge offers so much flexibility just by making a few adjustments. The whole guitar is a well put together instrument that can be taken apart for modifications in a mater of minutes. Ease of Use: Quick smooth solid maple neck allows for quick riffs. Quality: I did buy mine off of a Guitar Center floor so it's got a small nick in the neck and a faded spot on the pickguard, but for the price it was worth it. Value: Like I mentioned before I bought it off the Guitar Center floor with a few cosmetic flaws. But they sold it to me for a little over 100 bucks. I used the leftover money to invest in a hardcase for it. Manufacturer Support: Simple and easy to make self repairs if needed (which is rare). The solid Maple neck won't ash up like ebony of rosewood will. Overall: Great guitar for any player. I wouldn't recommend it for a beginning player just because it takes a little to break in yourself to the guitar. But experienced players should have no problem just picking it up and playing.
